  1. I really love this too, and the final video was not too bad either I think.

  2. I prefer the b+w Trick Of The Night video. Not a fan of the other one.
     
  3. It would have also suited the original more eerie version of the song too, as opposed to the SAW remix.

    Just came across this and wondered: what official megamixes did they have?
    I can find a Greatest Hits one on Discogs but it doesn't show a length, and Youtube obviously is full with fanmade ones
     
  5. Happy 35th to WOW!! Their most feel good record, and in my view, their best.
     
  6. If you're referring to the megamix that came on a free 12'' with copies of the album, it was 7'30 and included Love In The First Degree, I Heard A Rumour, I Can't Help It and Some Girls. A lovely addition to an already brilliant album.

  7. Playing WOW! (of course) right this moment. It really is as perfect as pop gets.

    Thanks. There seems to be a Wow one and a Greatest Hits one although they might be the same?

  10. Different. This is the Wow! Megamix:

  11. The second album I ever bought (on cassette!)

    Happy birthday WOW!
     
  12. I bought it on cassette too - what an iconic singles run and I love Some Girls and Once In A Lifetime too, both of which were strong enough to be singles too. The latter would have made a lovely Christmas single in 1987 with the girls walking around looking festive in the snow in the video.
     
  13. Because I had it on cassette, the 12" versions of Some Girls and Strike It Rich are the definitives for me.

  14. Once In A Lifetime, may well by my favourite from it. Beautiful ballad and would have indeed made an great choice for an single release around Christmas/winter time. Could have shown an different more softer side to the girls too.

  15. One of the best moments on that album, is the outro choruses to Once In A Lifetime where the vocals drop out and we get brief moments of that beautiful backing track.
     
  16. Wish we got more Bananarama ballads at times.
     
  17. I think this is a complete list of the official Megamixes. I provided YouTube links where I could, otherwise Discogs links. There were actually 4 versions of Megarama ’89 and in Bolivia one was called Megarama ’90. Did I forget anything?

    It’s about time we had a new Megamix!
     
  18. What was the megamix version used on the Greatest Hits Video collection? I think they refer to it as the multimix on the video.
